Tennis. Toni Nadal, uncle and coach of Rafael Nadal, says that his nephew's great success at Indian Wells was largely due to his aggression. “If Rafa can, he should always play like he did here at Indian Wells, more aggressive, as we tried to do last season.
When I heard that Del Potro defeated Djokovic I was very happy not to have to face him.” “After all the problems we had in these months, obtaining such an important victory and more over beating Top 10 guys like Federer, Berdych and Del Potro in the same tournament shows that our level is always there and we can keep on going this way.” "He has a very high concentration and endurance capacity.
To instil a strong mentality is easy, the difficulty is into maintaining it and in this Rafael is very good.” Toni then defended the decision of not taking part in Miami to preserve the knee and work on the leg’s strengthening.
“In tennis you never know, today you win and tomorrow you lose. Now we focus on arriving super prepared in Monte Carlo. We’ll see how it is going with Rafa, both on the game side and the body side. We hope that all will be for the best.”
